The forum theatre „Where is the woman in BiH society?“ was performed on 30.09.2015 in the Youth Center in Kakanj.
The basic idea behind the forum theatre is to bring into focus the problem of the position of women in BiH society, to present the problem through a story and to demonstrate on the stage some of the situations in which women find themselves.

Actors were volunteers from the audience. Having identified the causes, as they put it, of unequal status of women in BiH society, they developed a scenario on unemployment of women. They then performed a play of a male and a female applying to a job position. The play also included a curious journalist and an employee. During 2.5 hours of the performance's duration the audience was actively involved and thus helped view and understand the problem from different perspectives. In this way, one can bring the problem into focus and also start working on finding solutions. Everybody had the opportunity to state what they could do/contribute to solve the problem. To work on one's own improvement and to organize forum theatres about other issues were some of the recommendations.
And thus the first forum theatre in Kakanj has brought into focus the problem of the status of women in BiH society and opened up the space fro dialogue and constructive solutions. Great credit goes to the audience which was not afraid of something different and was actively involved in the performance.
